I'm glad this thread exists now, cause I've had the Group 2 qual since last July. I'm over 24k HITs, so still pretty 'new', but still in the 99% approval rate. Also, I had emailed Cloud Research about it, asking if there was a way to change the qual. Their response? "Researchers who use our system to run studies often set qualifications to determine eligibility for each particular study according to its specifications. These qualifications are based on many factors, including past performance, responses to earlier HITs, and specific demographic criteria. In these cases, workers who do not meet the measurements for these requirements will receive messages similar to the ones you have been receiving upon attempting to accept those HITs. Unfortunately, there is no way for us to grant you access to these HITs if you are not meeting the correct qualifications. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes."
